Tiny Baetis mayflies are perhaps the most commonly encountered and imitated by anglers on all American trout streams due to their great abundance, widespread distribution, and trout-friendly emergence habits.

One of Gary Borger's contributions for me, was his finishing knot for the fly. No tool, just twice under, pull up, and a drop of cement, and done. That was year's ago, and I have never used a tool since. Gary's comment was after showing you how simple the knot was..."Are we tying the fly to fish with?...or wearing it in our lapel? Gary had me hooked 100%.

Wait a minute!? What's going on here on TroutNut this morning? Creno dumps a pile of wonderful stuff in our laps from the Lloyd collection, on another thread North Country Spiders,another has tips on tying with snowshoe rabbit hair, and now fly-fishing with Borger...And no rants from Spence!!!
Maybe that baptist out west, or where ever he is, was right...The world ended a few days ago and we are in an angler's version of heaven...Glad to see you all made it through to the other side...:)
There is just too much for one fella to digest here at one time today...Thanks!
